SPRINGDALE, ARKANSAS -- I purchased 2 1# packages of Corn King Bacon last week. Through the "window" it looked OK. I opened one package today for breakfast and found blood dripping inside the package and dark red blood spots on the bacon. I have never purchased bacon with blood inside the package. I could not cook it… very unpleasant to look at. I am very disappointed as I am retired and have to bargain shop to make ends meet. Having to throw away food, breaks my heart. I won't ever buy a Corn King product again, as I cannot take the chance of it being bad. I am going to write to the company to see if they will, hopefully, reimburse me for this awful bacon.
PO BOX 2020, SPRINGDALE AR 72765-2020 -- I purchased a 10lb bag of Gold Leaf leg quarters and as I was repackaging them for freezing I found a large chunk of fat, not attached to anything. Also in the package was a neck with lots of skin and fat on it. I feel like these parts were added as filler to make it to the 10 lbs. So I feel like I was cheated and did not get 10 lbs of leg quarters.
Bought a 12oz package of Ole Carolina Hickory Smoked Sliced Bacon today at Walmart. I brought it home and hubby decided to use it for BLT's. He started to take it out of the pack while I put away the rest of the groceries. He stops me to show me what he has. The bacon is EXTREMELY fatty (the slice viewed in the 'representative slice' tear-away hole is much less so). In many places the 'slices' are one stringy piece, and not separated from one another.
Was NOT equal to what the quality of this product has been before (have bought this brand name a few times). This brand name is cheaper than many others, and I have often bought it for that reason. It has never been of an equal quality with the other brands that I sometimes buy, but this time was of even lesser than usual. (Usually for such as sandwiches or breakfasts I buy the better stuff; this was actually intended for potato soup. I can usually get away with using this in soup; this time I would've been disappointed even had I used it for that.)
I have been buying this chicken for about 2 years without any complaints until tonight. About 3/4ths of my chicken breasts had weird blue and black flecks over top of it like someone grabbed them with dirty gloves. I also found two male beard hairs within the package. One on top with the paint flecks and one underneath the chicken. I think I have lost my appetite to ever buy this product again!
FORT WORTH, TEXAS -- I purchased a pkg of ground sirloin at Walmart Super Center in Fort Worth, TX. Pkg stated it was 90/10 All Natural Ground Beef Sirloin with no artificial ingredients. Guaranteed 100% freshness. It did not even resemble meat and had no taste whatsoever. I would say it was 90% artificial.
